A petition started by CANZUK International to implement a free movement agreement between Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand has gained over 200,000 signatures.
The organization encompasses the notion that these four commonwealth countries share a unique socio-economic bond, and advocates a partnership similar to the European Union, or the Trans-Tasman Travel Arrangement (T.T.T.A) between Australia and New Zealand.
CANZUK aims to unite the citizens of these nations by giving them the right to live, work and study in each others’ countries with no restrictions regarding work permits or visa controls.
A Commonwealth coalition
A survey conducted by CANZUK reveals that a large proportion of the population of each country agrees with the idea of a free movement deal.
It was conducted over 15 days, during which 2,000 people in each country were asked if they would support an agreement that would allow the citizens of Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand to work and live in each others’ countries with restrictions. Here’s the percentage of people that said yes:
- 64% in the UK
- 72% in Australia
- 77% in Canada
- 81% in New Zealand
Do you agree with the idea that these four countries should be linked in a more free and unreserved way?
